STOP PRESS - our Amazing Ofsted Report from November 2019!:
We are pleased to say that in November 2019 Frenchay OOSC was judged at the highest grade now available to us: Met (with no actions). We are delighted with the feedback we received from the inspector about the quality of care we provide. Below are some of the many positive comments in the report:
‘Children enjoy their time at the club. They eagerly arrive and happily talk with staff about their day at school.
‘Staff have formed lovely bonds with the children and know the children well. They value their opinions and use their knowledge of the children along with children's suggestions to plan fun, exciting activities.
‘Children behave well and staff show a consistent approach to managing children's behaviour. Staff talk with children about their behaviour and what the expectations are while they are at the club
‘Children are kind and show concern for others.’
‘Staff create an extremely inclusive environment where diversity is highly respected. They are excellent role models and treat children with high levels of respect. Children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are well supported.
‘Staff know the children well and genuinely care about the children's enjoyment while at the club.
‘The views of children and parents is given high priority.
‘Staff enthusiastically join in ball games with the children, they play football and basketball. They offer lots of praise and encouragement to boost children's self-esteem and confidence.
‘Staff supervise children closely at all times outdoors and children are aware of the rules and expectations when outside.
‘Parents speak highly of the club. They comment that they are very happy with the care provided and that their children enjoy their time at the club. They state that staff are friendly and give good feedback when they collect children at the end of the day.
‘Children are highly independent, they make wraps for their snack and wash up their plates and cutlery when they have finished.
‘Snack time is a sociable time, staff engage children in conversations and listen intently to what children have to say.
‘(Staff) take into account children's interests when planning activities and gather children's feedback to help them reflect on activities provided.
‘Staff deploy themselves effectively to supervise children during their play and to provide them with the support they need’.

Thank you for our lovely recent parental feedback:
I want to take this opportunity to thank all the team so much for their excellent work - every member of OOSC staff I met was *always* smiley, good-humoured, and boundlessly patient. Gabriel loved breakfast and after school club and was always excited on the days he got to go, and that moved it from being something that was ‘just’ wraparound care to being a real enrichment to his life. Special thanks to Kate, Robyn and Marina, who lifted my day too with their warmth and loveliness on so many occasions. I would unhesitatingly recommend OOSC to any parent.'
Sarah - July 2020
I hope you are well. We are missing you and all the staff - Sol has said several times that he misses OOSC more than school!
